West Michigan Influencers

Looking to start your journey as an influencer?
It can be scary diving into the world of social media influencing… but we have a few tips and recommendations.
- Create a niche and find your target audience
This is where you decide what type of content you are going to feature. If you are a big foodie who loves trying new places to eat, try a food blog. All the fashionistas should consider doing a try-on haul or outfit of the day look.
- Don’t be afraid to reach out to brands
It never hurts to ask. Worse case they say no, and you move on to the next company. But you might be surprised how many brands are interested in working with you at some level.
- Do what you love
If you are interested in working with a particular company, it is a good idea to grab their attention by going to their business. Follow it up by giving them a shoutout on social media and talking about your experience.
- Video content is where it is at!
Videos are taking over the social media advertising landscape. Especially with the rise of TikTok, and Instagram pushing Reels. Use video when you can on Instagram, but be sure to include a mix of photos as well. As for TikTok, short or long-form videos can perform well, but the algorithm can be a bit more tricky.
